Love snow but hate the cold? We have the solution! The Resource Exchange recently saved a few boxes of paper snow, which is commonly used on sets of theatre productions as a way to bring a snowy day to the stage. These boxes were specifically saved from The New York City Opera!

   

We are thrilled to announce that the Claneil Foundation has awarded The Resource Exchange a $14,000 multi-year grant through their Community Grant Program.


“The Claneil Foundation works to create healthy communities by supporting organizations that: make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and the institutions that support them; develop an informed, educated, and engaged citizenry; and increase the understanding and appreciation of natural, built, and cultural assets.”

We are so grateful for their support of our work keeping valuable material out of Philadlephia’s landfills and increasing the awareness of the environmental, artistic, and economic benefits of creative reuse and recycling.

reCreate Featured Artist
J. Pascoe
Opening Reception  
Sunday, February 8th
2pm-4pm


J. Pascoe is a local artist and book maker who uses reclaimed materials in her works, like books, prints, paintings, and collage pieces. Pascoe recieved her MFA in Book Arts and Print Making at The University of the Arts. The work shown in The Resource Exchange’s Gallery is part of her Spatial Summation series.

Studies in Premeditation is part of an ongoing series, Spatial Summation, cataloging my fears and anxieties around unknown elements in my personal and professional life via detail-oriented collage work and reuse of scraps, fragments, and other cast-off paper material. All materials were sourced from my employment as Conservation Technician at The Wagner Free Institute of Science.

 

Over the last three years I have been drawn to art work that demanded meditation-like focus alongside simple figures or shapes such as silhouettes of bodies in space, contour drawings, diagrams, and here: circles. Feeling unable to find solutions in my day-to-day life, I have worked towards making answers in my work – I make work to create a path to follow, if only in two dimensional format.

These works satisfy many parts of me, they; name my fears; supply a satisfying finish, end line, or summation to these fears; offer a comforting sense of work-in-progress; and allow me to meditate on the color palette and textural range found in the papers collected and collaged as a fixed point in my struggles with anxiety.

Don't miss J. Pascoe's work up in the Resource Exchange's reCreate Gallery for the entire month of February!
